Ariana Grande Wrongfully Blamed For Mac Miller's Death

Ariana Grande Is Not Responsible For Mac Miller's Death And Needs To Be Left Alone

Women are not obligated to put their partners back together.

I have seen many people speaking about how Mac Miller has positively influenced their lives and it has been heartwarming to read. But unfortunately, these loving comments have been overshadowed by the "fans" that have used his death as an excuse to attack Ariana Grande. She had already dealt with her fair share of abuse from his fans before his death, because shortly after she had broken up with him, Miller got charged with a DUI. His fans held Grande responsible because she began dating Pete Davidson, her current fiancé, soon after her breakup with Miller.

One fan, in particular, believed that it was wrong of her to leave him because he had written a song about her, which suggests that Grande owed him a relationship with her. It completely ignores the fact that she believed their relationship was toxic because of his battle with substance abuse. She decided to break up with Miller for her own sake, not because she no longer cared for him. Few of his fans were able to understand this, so all of the hate Grande received after their breakup came flooding back at her, except worse, after Miller's death.

Immediately after his death was announced, people took to Grande's Instagram account and left comment after comment blaming her for Miller's death. The hate was so horrible that she turned off her comment section only a few hours after the news of his death was released.

Our society has made it a habit to expect the girlfriends of men to take care of them as if they are a child. Many of Miller's fans believed that Grande was supposed to help cure him of his addiction because it was her duty as his girlfriend. They thought it was cruel that she left him when he needed her to be sober, but that is a harmful expectation to have of anyone. It was not Grande's job to put Miller back together. We can all only be responsible for ourselves.

Women are always expected to spread ourselves too thin and give to everyone around us without expecting any form of support in return. We are seen as caregivers, so if we do not neglect ourselves in order to help our loved ones, then we are seen as terrible people.

However, it is unfair to Grande to assume that because she broke up with Miller, that she must have never cared about his sobriety in the first place. One of Miller's friend's, Shane Powers, spoke on his podcast about how Grande was there for Miller when he was trying to sober up. He stated,

"There could not have been anybody more supportive of him being sober than Ariana. I saw that. I was around it. I took phone calls from her: 'How do I help? What do I do?' This little girl was unbelievably involved and helpful to him being healthy."

Of course, she wanted him to be sober and get his life back on track because she cared for him deeply. Grande gave him the support he needed, but she was not going to do it at the expense of her own mental health. Before anything else, we must care for ourselves.

There was absolutely nothing wrong with Grande's decision to end her relationship with Miller and she should not feel guilty for his death. The only person that caused Miller's death is Miller himself. Addiction is a terrifying illness and it is extremely sad that Miller lost his life because of it, but Grande is not to blame.

18 Times Kate Middleton Was Actually All Of Us In College, Beside The Princess Thing

Every girl has to go through her clueless college stage before she reaches Duchess status.

Kate Middleton is basically a household name by now, and how could this not be the case when she has the gorgeous hair, kind smile, and incredible fashion sense. With her constantly in the spotlight looking so put together, we sometimes forget that the Duchess was actually all of us in college!

Here are 18 times that Kate proved she was just like all of us.

1. Going all out in the name of school spirit

There is nothing like breaking out the war paint and screaming for your home team. Like Kate, we all love to get a little messy and make some memories with our friends.

2. Hanging out with the roomies

Some people may not get lucky in this area but for those who are best friends with their roommates, they understand the love. It's a dream come true for everyone who has always wanted to live with their best friends. It's like a sleepover that never ends.

3. Dressing up cute on the first day of school...

You got to make a good first impression on your way to school. Whether it's during your 7 A.M or 4 P.M., it's always best to dress to impress.

4. ...and wearing yoga pants for the rest of the year

And this goes all the way until the last week of school when you don't bother getting out of bed to wear pants at all.

5. Going grocery shopping and throwing in cookies, ice-cream, and every type of Pringles because your mom isn't there to say no

You'll probably regret that in a few months when the Freshman Fifteen kicks in.

6. Walking for miles from your car to your dorm carrying groceries

We can't park by the apartment for a solid five minutes to carry our groceries up to the kitchen or we will risk a ticket, but we can walk a few miles carrying food that gets heavier, and heavier, and heavier with every step.

7. Going out for a night on the town on a Friday night

Dancing, laughter, and fun? Everyone in college has been to a party or two. It's a classic part of the college experience. Sometimes you just need a distraction from all the essays and tests.

8. Being so late to class you threw on whatever your hands grabbed next

We've all been there. Our alarm doesn't go off, we press snooze a few too many times, or forget to even set an alarm and next thing you know we are running around the dorm room like Taz from Looney Toons. You throw on whatever, then run to class.

Unfortunately 9/10 times our outfits don't turn out. Although, Kate can certainly pull off this look, no matter how mismatched.

9. Pretending your walking to the same building as the cute boy you met so you have the excuse to keep talking to him

I am very guilty of doing this. Although I missed my class, at least I got to talk to the really cute boy who has class at 9:45 in the STEM building. It was worth it.

10. Sitting on the floor or standing because you're a poor college student who can't afford chairs or tables

Eating on the floor? Always. Being a college kid is tough and sometimes you have to sacrifice some things to obtain the others. Such as choosing chocolate milk and Halo Top over vegetables and hair conditioner.

Judging by Kate's beautiful locks, she chose the conditioner.

Probably the vegetables too.

We should just all follow her example.

11. Going on cute date with the boy you followed to class-turned-boyfriend

Now my short-lived romance may not have extended farther than us talking and walking to his class, but Kate and William obviously had a better ending. Nevertheless, college is the place to grow and date and possibly find the one.

12. Keeping your hair long and growing because you can't afford to get it cut

Don't trust your roommate. No matter how many times she begs you to let her cut it. Don't.

13. Turning 21 and getting dressed up and going out with your best friends

While this one probably doesn't apply to Kate, since you can drink at age 18 in most countries, all my people in the United States know the sweet freedom of turning 21. It's an iconic time in a students life and marks a huge milestone as well.

14. Passing out flyers for some type of movement or protest

Everyone wants to be a part of something bigger - which is why college is the time to stand up for what you believe in. May that be RedforEd, Planned Parenthood, anti-Abortion, Trump, the Wall, pizza bagels, it's all an exercise of the first amendment.

15. Ranting to your friends about the professor that just "doesn't understand you"

You know your thinking about that professor right now as you read this. And you know that that's your reaction whenever they give you a bad grade or say something you disagree with at the tiniest degree.

16. Getting glammed-up for those senior photos

Pick out your best outfit and make sure it's a good hair day because everyone will be viewing these photos forever... and in Kate's place that is more than true. Luckily she looks as gorgeous as ever. Does she ever have a bad hair day?

17. Walking out of your last class knowing you'll never have to write a single paper again

And purposefully not thinking about how you will be going into the real world in less than a few days.

18. When you've graduated and realized you have no idea what you're going to do with your life

Maybe a prince will be right around the corner to sweep you off your feet so you won't have to figure your life out.
